Testimonials from our Members

My agency belongs to MARFY because in an environment where residential childcare is constantly changing, we need to be connected to an agency that has their pulse on the heartbeat of the State of Maryland and best practices.

Todd Mecham

Executive Director, Maryland Salem Children's Trust

I cannot put a value on what MARFY does.  More than being an organization of members, it is an assembly with an intense passion and drive, committed to improving the lives of every single youth in Maryland.

Donna McCarter

Executive Director, Neighbor to Family

In the 25 years that we have been members of MARFY, we have grown and improved with the collective knowledge and advice of so many youth professionals.  I would not trade that 25 years of expertise for anything!

Richard Bienvenue

Founder and Executive Director, Our House

As a corporate MARFY member, we have enjoyed the opportunity to build excellent business partnerships. We have found that being a MARFY member has given us the opportunity to meet and work with many Provider Agencies. We partner with them in providing a staffing and consulting service that brings them enhanced efficiencies, adds value and shares in the mutual vision of serving Maryland’s youth and families.
